Our purpose

Endeavour House is a thriving centre for social change organisations in Canberra, and is owned and managed by Ethical Property, a landlord who believes property can be more than just bricks and mortar.

Our community offers a mix of tenants organisations involved in campaigning, community health services, business services, research and policy development, as well as local retailers.

Endeavour House holds a clear vision to become the platform for the Australian “Voice” of Social Change, which means:

  • Amplifying the voices of our community members and those wishing to effect positive social change at a National Policy level.
  • Creating awareness of issues and educating society to the facts that sit behind the reasons why change is necessary.
  • Allowing the external and building to become a canvas (or stage) for Voices to share their purpose.
  • Engage with storytelling, culture and the arts so that important messages resonate and are passed on.
  • Offer an alternative political commentary, through satire, and challenge, that is independent from vested interests.
  • Creating a Canberra icon that becomes known as a centre for good people, who do good work.

Since purchasing the building in 2016 we have been working hard to bring this vision to light, and we remain committed with full and complete implementation expected by 2025.

We would love for you to come and add your Voice to ours, click here to arrange an inspection today.


Our history

Endeavour House was originally constructed in the 1950s as a two-storey retail precinct around a large glass atrium. Over the next 20-30 years it was extended to four storeys and largely converted to offices.

In the 1980’s, Endeavour House was the nerve centre for the design team during the construction of new Parliament House.

It seems fitting that a building which was once a hub for those designing the home of the Federal Parliament should now be a centre for organisations designing a better Australia.
